Boom

The electrifying Beckham is healthy again after last yearís injury-marred campaign. He missed the 2017 season opener with a high-ankle sprain, then played only four games before a broken ankle ended his season. After a tentative start in his first game back from the sprain, Beckham had 21 receptions for 266 yards and three touchdowns in three games before going down for the year. Beckham produced more than 90 receptions, more than 1,300 receiving yards and 10 or more TDs in each of his first three years in the league, and he ranked in the top five in WR fantasy scoring in each of those seasons. He has an established rapport with QB Eli Manning and remains the undisputed alpha receiver in the Giantsí offense.

Bust

Manning is on the decline, and itís possible that TE Evan Engram and WR Sterling Shepard could put a small dent in Beckhamís target totals. Injuries are at least a minor concern, with Beckham having dealt with hamstring issues in the past, not to mention last yearís ankle woes. Beckham has a reputation for being highly emotional, although that side of his personality doesnít appear to affect his production and seems to annoy the Giantsí brass more than it annoys his fantasy owners.

Bottom Line

A mega-producer with diva tendencies, Beckham is never boring. If you can get a discount on him after his injury-plagued 2018 season, take it. He should be a first-rounder in PPR leagues, and probably in all standard-scoring leagues, too.
